A highly ordered nanostructured carbon-sulphur cathode for lithium-sulphur batteries.
The feasibility to approach high gravimetric capacities of the Li-S battery by creating highly ordered interwoven composites is reported, conceptually providing new opportunities for materials scientists for tailored design that can be extended to many different electrode materials.
Positive Electrode Materials for Li-Ion and Li-Batteries†
Positive electrodes for Li-ion and lithium batteries (also termed “cathodes”) have been under intense scrutiny since the advent of the Li-ion cell in 1991. This is especially true in the past decade.
Advances in Li–S batteries
Rechargeable Li–S batteries have received ever-increasing attention recently due to their high theoretical specific energy density, which is 3 to 5 times higher than that of Li ion batteries based on
Challenges facing lithium batteries and electrical double-layer capacitors.
The Review will consider some of the current scientific issues underpinning lithium batteries and electric double-layer capacitors.
Approaching Theoretical Capacity of LiFePO4 at Room Temperature at High Rates
Nanocomposites of and conductive carbon were prepared by two different methods which lead to enhanced electrochemical accessibility of the Fe redox centers in this insulating material. Method A
Nano-network electronic conduction in iron and nickel olivine phosphates
The demonstration of non-carbonaceous-network grain-boundary conduction to be the first in these materials, and that it holds promise for other insulating phosphates.
A high-capacity and long-life aqueous rechargeable zinc battery using a metal oxide intercalation cathode
High-performing positive electrode materials are crucial for the development of aqueous Zn-ion batteries. Here the authors report a battery based on reversible intercalation of Zn ions in a layered
A highly efficient polysulfide mediator for lithium-sulfur batteries.
A strategy to entrap polysulfides in the cathode that relies on a chemical process, whereby a host--manganese dioxide nanosheets serve as the prototype--reacts with initially formed lithium polysolfides to form surface-bound intermediates, which are among the best reported to date.
The emerging chemistry of sodium ion batteries for electrochemical energy storage.
The Review considers some of the current scientific issues underpinning sodium ion batteries, including the discovery of new materials, their electrochemistry, and an increased understanding of ion mobility based on computational methods.
Understanding the Nature of Absorption/Adsorption in Nanoporous Polysulfide Sorbents for the Li–S Battery
The possibility of achieving high-energy, long-life storage batteries has tremendous scientific and technological significance. A prime example is the Li–S cell, which can offer a 3–5-fold increase
